This little board allows to connect your retro DB9 amiga / C64 joystick device and use it on your favorite emulator.
Does not require any driver (is detected by windows as a game controller).
Supports autofire (if your joysticks allows it).
Works from Win XP to Win10 and also Linux, MacOSX and Morph OS.
NEW Works directly on C64 Maxi and Mini. Also supports firmware update via USB, so no programmer needed to update the flash on futher updates.
Just plug and play :).
Update: 12/01/2020: New firmware used based on the Stefan Blixth design https://github.com/develin4000/joydivision. Now it’s compatible with C64 Mini and Maxi.
Update: 06/12/2018: Now works with 64mini too 🙂 (note: depending on your game, maybe the original c64mini joystick is required to setup the game, then you can use your old retro joystick).
